EVC Corporate Screenings
Updated: Dec 28, 2021
Seeking innovative and engaging ways to discuss systemic racism with your employees? Want to learn from young people most impacted by structural violence?
EVC works with Corporations, including their Diversity and Inclusion Departments and Employee Resource Groups, to organize virtual screenings of short documentary films produced by NYC high school students about systemic racism and other structural injustices. Our award winning archive of over 200 youth produced films explore topics such as police brutality, inequity in healthcare, environmental racism, unequal education, gentrification, mental health struggles, LGBTO+ discrimination and more.
Twenty minute screenings are followed by discussions that can be customized for each Corporation for any format, length of time, or number of participants. Screenings can be single events or curated as an ongoing series. EVC youth filmmakers, staff and others involved in the creation of these documentaries can be available for the O&A and discussions following each screening.
